In Aristotle 'questioning' is the derivation of the opposite in arguments, the eliciting of something from a respondent and afterwards trying to elicit that which is contrary to it from him, and by this method showing him the contradiction in his responses.[1]
Greek Original:
Αἴτησις: παρὰ Ἀριστοτέλει αἴτησίς ἐστι τοῦ ἐναντίου ἡ ἐν λόγοις παραγωγή, τὸ λαμβάνειν τι παρὰ τοῦ ἀποκρινομένου καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα πειρᾶσθαι τὸ ἀντικείμενον αὐτῷ παρ' αὐτοῦ λαμβάνειν καὶ διὰ τούτου τοῦ τρόπου δεῖξαι τὴν ἐναντιολογίαν τῶν ἀποκρίσεων.
